SONG OF THE DAY: Neon Indian – “Polish Girl”

I’ve been bumping Neon Indian’s new album Era Extraña (Mom + Pop Music, 2011) repeatedly since its release. The album was recorded entirely in Helsinki, Finland in the middle of a frosty winter.  As a teaser to the album, lead singer Alan Palomo released clips of him walking around Helsinki  while looking mysteriously cool. The album doesn’t sound like it was recorded in winter though – it channels a vibrant, summer vibe reminiscent of their debut album, Psychic Chasms. “Polish Girl” is the first single off the new album and is definitely one of my favorites. It highlights Palomo’s musical growth; it feels much more mature and well crafted than anything off the last album. Check it out!


SONG OF THE DAY: Maverick Sabre – “I Need”

Maverick Sabre is a definite up and coming artist out of the UK. Before you check out the music video for his new single, “I Need” take a look at the picture above and try to imagine what his voice sounds like. Then get blown away by the mountain of soul he brings to the track. This is the kind of song that makes you look up and sing to some higher power. Sabre’s new album comes out January.

SONG OF THE DAY: Low — “Try To Sleep”

|the crisp, suspirant purge|

Low’s latest album–their ninth–was released by Sub Pop in April.  As with all their previous efforts, C’mon is a slow-burner, revealing itself in time to be a careful study in restraint and a critical examination of us, here, today.

Be sure to check them out on Sunday, September 25th at Colorado College’s Armstrong Theater at 7pm.  Check out KRCC’s website  for more details.
